I like

I wholeheartedly back up this choice. Jerr may be in the throes of severe Twinkie overload, but he manages to rip this up.

Wow. That source is the cats meow. Good job Hunter.

E- A MD (at least vocally) for the ages as well.

That was the tape that got me on the bus once and for all. Had been really enjoying the music on a slightly more casual level for a couple of years when a friend who was at this show popped the tape in during a particularly spirited game of giving the plastic pipe CPR. When Jerry whipped out those gut wrenching growls in MD, I was sucked in (peanut gallery: don't say I never gave you anything) on a deeply spiritual level and have yet to look back.

That show (the Clugston source I would later find out) was key in the beginning of my conversion. (As was 4-14-85 and Riverbend '85, which is why I probably have a soft spot for this era.) The whole second set is one song, as the epic ones tend to be. I Don't Need Love even works for the only time ever. The first set is very good as well, though I usually start at Cumberland. The whole show feels like a fever dream.

I went looking for Pentangle and stumbled across Del McCoury with the Chieftains doing the tune. At the Ryman. Pretty cool.
